Leopard Attacks in Nepal

A leopard killed a woman at Kaski in the middle hills of Nepal and has mauled several other people, Chuck MacDougal writes from Kathmandu.

But he says that up to April there had been no tiger or leopard attacks in the Chitwan area since the monsoon last year, not even during the grass cutting season when the activities of large numbers of people may clash with the cats.
